Abstract

This paper deals specifically with parental influence on the college plans of high school students in Seoul, Korea. In this light, some social predictors affecting perceived parental encouragement in relation to the student's college plans were examined. The findings reveal that students who perceived strong parental encouragement were very likely to aspire to continue on to college. More specifically, students of parents with relatively high education and in upper income levels were very likely to perceive strong parental encouragement, as against those with parents of relatively low education and lower income levels, to continue on to college.
